A Snow Day or Three

This has been the scene the last few days... 
so Monday and Tuesday we just hibernated... happily!
It wasn't just snowy, its been bitter cold.
We only left Wednesday night for Christmas play practice.

I love it, 
staying in our pj's, 
baking constantly, 
making a bigger mess than usual because we have nowhere to be and no need to clean up.
Taking extra time to make a nice dinner,
watching Christmas movies over and over.

Here is what our hibernating looks like.
Reading about the birth of Jesus and putting sticker in our mangers scenes as we read.
Helping make Daddy's favorite...
poppy-seed cake and rice krispie treats.
Sadly all good things must come to an end.
But we have a weekend of fun and memory making ahead, 
and I get to go shopping kid free tonight.

There is good in everything.
If your snuggled in warm in your fuzzy robe and slippers, 
or out at the mall braving the crowds...
find the joy!

I absolutely love reading your blog! It makes you and your family seem closer in proximity than you really are. How fun to have days where you can stay in your jammies and hang out together with the kiddos. They are truly blessed to have you and Tom as their parents. :) Hugs to all of you and Merry Christmas! ~Annie

Other than Daniels "horsey" being upside down, hahaha and your welcome mat is backwards....i have nothing....except for loving the pics of "just hanging out at home"...those are fun times and lots of learning via body language and little observations when no one else is around!! oh, and where in the world were you to get that camera shot of Daniel in the playpen? seems like you're pretty high up ...hope you weren't on a LADDER!! at 7 1/2 months pregnant!! tsk tsk tsk...anyways, i love seeing the "home" shots and seeing the kiddo's do stickers and learning the true meaning of CHRISTMAS!! GOOD JOB! xoxo AJ
